What a difference a day makes

I was noticing yesterday that we finally had a few areas in the yard where all the snow had melted. It wasn't green grass yet, nor the whole yard, but there were a few spots. And the sidewalk was very icy from all the melted snow that refroze.

Last night it snowed and it was very windy today. Someone from our town estimated we got about 10 inches but it's hard to tell with the drifts. Here's a photo from this afternoon when it had died down a little. This photo is taken out our back door looking at our back yard. You can just barely see the sidewalk that is not shoveled. The wind chills are bitterly cold too. We stayed home today and probably will stay home tomorrow too.
The Lambs have extreme cabin fever. I feel like all I have accomplished this week is settling petty arguments between them. The two oldest lambs used a whole can of parmesan cheese on their food and laughed about it; Lamb 2 colored the living room carpet with red crayon; Lamb 3 broke the latch to the china cupboard; Lamb 3 continually finds stickers the other Lambs left out and eats them and we have to get them out before he chokes; and Lamb 3 continually stands in his high chair (no matter how tight he is buckled in he can get loose) and he grabbed a kiwi out of the fruit bowl and took a bite out of it skin and all. Just imagine, all this happened while I was watching them, not when they were unattended! Most of this would be solved if they could run around outside and get rid of some energy. I'm anxious for spring to come and in the meantime I continue to watch the Lambs like a Mama hawk!

I'm so looking forward to Spring too. It will be nice to shoo everyone outside to play and get rid of energy!
